[Mono-list] Instructions for Windows install?
Fri, 16 Apr 2004 21:57:13 -0600
I downloaded the pre-built Windows installer. Aside from my permissions
problem, that ran fine and installed without incident.
But I can't find anything at all on what to do next. The path was not
set up, so I added the /bin directory manually, guessing that it was the
right thing to do. I tried to test this by running 'mcs' (in a Cygwin
Bash shell, and also in a DOS shell) and got the following error:
"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK
to terminate the application."
This isn't exactly a surprise, considering mcs.exe is supposed to be a
.NET executable, right? I notice there's a shell script called 'mcs',
which kind of looks like it's supposed to run mcs.exe using mono, but 1)
it has strange paths, 2) it's a Bourne shell script, this is Windows,
and 3) as far as I can tell the .exe (having the same name, but with the
.exe extension) will always run first, so I don't even know if I can run
the script. Here's the entire contents:
c:/b/install/bin/mono c:/b/install/bin/mcs.exe "$@"
My installation path is "C:\Program Files\Mono-0.31", so I don't know
where the /b/install stuff comes from.
I also tried to just run 'mono'. That gives the following error:
"This application has failed to start because icuin26.dll was not found.
Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
Can anyone clue me in on what to do or where to find information about
how to complete a Windows install?
